Title
Saint Brigid's and it's Foundation: a Tradition of Caring Since 1856
Abstract
Excursions have always been part of Saint Brigid’s history. In the summer of 1894, the orphans piled into horse-drawn trams and wagons headed for the rural hinterland of Sainte Foy, where they enjoyed a picnic on Mr. Boyce’s farm. While horse-drawn trams are a thing of the past, and Sainte Foy now has more parking lots than farms, the home’s residents still enjoy trips to see the fall colours, go fishing, or enjoy a spot of shopping. In the following pages, the SAINT BRIGID’S HOME FOUNDATION invites you on a different sort of journey: a trip through time that takes you from the beginnings of the home to the present day.
